Don Knuth

The University Archives is pleased to announce that videotaped lectures from Don Knuth's computer science course Mathematical Writing (CS209), given in the fall of 1987, are now available online. The course focused on issues of technical writing and the effective presentation of mathematics and computer science. Guest lectures included Herb Wilf (University of Pennsylvania), Jeff Ullman (Stanford), Leslie Lamport (Digital Equipment Corporation) , Nils Nilsson (Stanford), Mary-Claire van Leunen (Digital Equipment Corporation) , Rosalie Stemer (San Francisco Chronicle), and Paul Halmos (University of Santa Clara). The class notes are available as a Stanford report, Mathematical Writing, and a published book.


Finding the best tool for your research and using it efficiently is a challenge for all new students.  The Stanford Libraries offer workshops to help you increase your skill level, explore new resources and network with other students.  If you don’t have time to attend a workshop, you can review these videos on some of the research tools provided by the library. 

Workshops are scheduled during September, October and November with the first sessions during the week of September 28.

Books in Terman Library

Welcome to Stanford and the School of Engineering. As you prepare to start your studies, the Engineering library has pulled together some helpful tips for getting started with doing research at Stanford.

The Terman Engineering Library has three Engineering Subject Specialists to answer your questions and help you get what you need for your projects and research. Please feel free to reach out to us.

Terman Engineering Library stacks

During June and July, the Terman Engineering Library will continue to reduce the number of items on the shelves in the library in order to add additional student study space.  This project will include the transfer of approximately 4500 books to SAL3 and the removal of four ranges of shelving, a 40% reduction in shelving capacity.  After the move of collections, the library will have approximately 7000 items on the remaining four stack ranges.  The newly available floor space will allow for six new study tables and four new individual study carrels, a total of 28 additional seats, representing a 30% increase in seating capacity at the library. Mike Nack, project lead, has prepared a summary document.   The library will be open during the move of materials, although during the dismantling of the stacks currently scheduled for the second week of July, students may want to find a quieter location to study.
